Laboratories VIVACY® is a French manufacturer specialising in the design, production and distribution of high quality injectable medical devices for use in the field of Anti-ageing, especially in Medical Aesthetics and Viscosupplementation.


Founded in 2007 by specialists qualified in biopolymers and injectable product technologies with more than 15 years experience in the field, the company has acquired recognised expertise in dermal fillers based on hyaluronic acid and natural antioxidants, mannitol and sorbitol. The company has also created new technologies for use in ophthalmology (I.SPACE®), rheumatology (KARTILAGE®), gynaecology (DESIRIAL®®) and is currently developing in other medical viscosupplementation fields.


Thanks to its strong international distribution network, Laboratoires VIVACY® is present on the medical aesthetics market in over 70 countries. Its main goal is to design and deliver innovative anti-ageing solutions in collaboration with physicians and biotechnology professionals worldwide.


Exchange of information, knowledge, experience and a strong team spirit are an integral part of the strategic management of the company, both regionally and internationally.





Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural absorbable glycosaminoglycan, the most abundant essential constituent of the human body, (umbilical cord, eye, synovial fluid, dermis, etc.). It is naturally present in the dermis and is an essential constituent of the structure of the skin giving it hydration, suppleness and tone. It could be compared to a sponge capable of binding to water and retaining it in the deep layers. The role of hyaluronic acid is therefore essential to maintain the 70% water in young skin!


In other parts of the body however its function is to provide viscosity for the fluids necessary for shock-absorption (joint fluids) and for filling cavities (vitreous humour of the eye).


It is a ubiquitous molecule (identical in all species) which is perfectly tolerated by the organism. Over time and depending on each individual, its concentration and quality reduces both in the dermis and in all the other parts of the body where it is found.


Hyaluronic acid can be of animal origin (extracted from cocks’ combs) or be the result of biofermentation (bacterial fermentation). Laboratoires VIVACY® use hyaluronic acid produced through biofermentation. In the laboratory it undergoes a slight chemical change (cross-linking method) so that it is more stable and retains its properties longer over time. In fact, when unmodified its lifespan in the human body is only several days!





Hyaluronic acid has been used for more than 20 years in many products throughout the world. Because of its unique rheological properties, biocompatibility, biodegradability, HA has been extensively investigated in drug-delivery applications.



Hyaluronic acid, a natural component of the vitreous humor of the eye, has found many successful applications in ophthalmologic surgery (i.e. corneal transplant surgery, cataract surgery, glaucoma, protection of the corneal endothelium etc.). Furthermore, HA solutions also serve as a viscosity-enhancing component of eye drops and as an adjuvant to eye tissue repair.



Hyaluronic acid plays a vital role in the development of cartilage and the maintance of the sinovial fluid surrounding the joints. Because of its viscoelastic nature and ability to form highly hydrated matrices, HA acts in the joint as a lubricant and shock absorber. Intra-articular injections of HA are used in joints (e.g. knee, hip, finger, etc.) in order to increase the viscosity of the synovial fluid and provide more cushioning support for joints to move freely without pain.



Hyaluronic acid is considered to be a new anti-ageing miracle molecule for skin rejuvenation and soft tissue augmentation (e.g. wrinkle correction, restoring of facial volume and contours).



Hyaluronic acid is used as an ingredient in beauty and skin care products because of its moisturizing and anti-ageing properties.
